Beautiful location and nice house. Would have been perfect if it didn't have septic issues.

  • 2 of 5

House would have been perfect if the Septic tank was properly functioning. Could not do laundry and had to be careful how much the toilets were being flushed do to fear of a back up. Called and left a message with the owner with no response. I would not recommend staying here until the issue has been resolved.

AWESOME!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderfull time staying here!! Everything about the house was perfect. Very spacious and the kitchen was great!! The location to the springs is just a quick paddle away. The canoe and kayaks right at the house were awesome and we did not have to go and rent them!! You could not ask for better owners. Thanks Frank and Mana. We will be back next year!

Cozy with lots of room

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay. Very nice accommodations for our family of six. The kayaks were lots of fun. I wasn't expecting or prepared for the 30 degree weather here in Florida we had on one night. The thermostat is a older model and would not adjust for us but we did find blankets. Great vacation stay and I am looking forward to coming back.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Just a very short paddle away from the Spings, this home is perfect if you are in Homosassa to enjoy water!

The covered boat slip saves soooo much time and aggravation from the daily launching and loading that would be required otherwise.

Loved it - our 2nd year there.
